Police in Western Australia have developed a roof mounted radar speed detector, turning every patrol car into a mobile speed camera, in their drive to catch speeding motorists.
The new technology combines radar for speed measurement with an on-board video camera. Speeding motorists would then receive fines by post.
Police are now seeking funds to to install on 48 cars in the fleet and for further development. Ultimately they plan to install the technology in every new patrol car at a cost of $70,000 per vehicle.
